Tokyo Tribe
Filmfest 2015

German Age Rating

Watch Teaser

Outrageous, crude, weirdly comic and never predictable, TOKYO TRIBE is yet another solid punch-to-the-gut by wild-child director Sion Sono, as he fights to reclaim the yakuza genre, martial arts fight scenes and dirty dystopian futures from Western cinema. Oh, and did we mention it’s all in hip hop?

Equal parts THE WARRIORS and BREAKIN’ 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO, Sion Sono’s rap musical TOKYO TRIBE is also self-referential Japanese genre exploitation movie to the marrow, meaning there’s plenty of pinku-style nudity and threatened rape, martial-arts action and the occasional blood geyser. The latest from the culty filmmaker is insistently over-the-top from the start.
